Here's a few observations from a relative newcomer to planner (6 months): -
1. I came to planner after looking at various other todo-ish modes, noteably org-mode. One thing that nearly skuppered (did I spell that right?) me using planner was that the table formatting is nowhere near as good as in org-mode, even with table.el loaded.
2. When I published my planner and pointed people at the WikiIndex they all moaned about the big-long list of day pages. What they wanted to see were the plan pages where all my project notes are. I explained that all they had to do was scroll down, but the first impression was bad. Perhaps the indexes for plan and day pages could be separated.
Other than that, I love it.

http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/PlannerModeMethods tries to be a
step in the (right?) direction. What else can we do to make it easier?
